Industry Tours



Australian Synchrotron Facility (ANSTO ) – Clayton

Due to the current issues with the Coronavirus and the further restrictions on public gatherings, I advse that the proposed tours for the Australian Sychrontron – as planned for Friday 24 April – have now been cancelled.

I comfirm that I have been very pleased and appreciative with the response from members , and the wide interest in this tour – hence rather than totally drop the tour, I have been busy arranging a future date for the tours.

As the cornoavirus effects and the public gathering restrictions are still fast evolving within Australia, I have arranged a Tentative date for new tours has been agreed for Thursday 26 November 2020, times still at 10.00am and 11.45am.  If necessary this date can be further pushed out into 2021, subject to agreement with ANSTO.

The Probus Club via the Newsletter will further advise all members – around August 2020 – as to the situation at that time, and to provide a further update on this tour.  In the meantime, best wishes to all, and please stay safe and try to keep calm and well occupied.

If anyone needs further discussions or advice, you are always welcome to call me and discuss.

Best Regards,

Graeme Roy  TEL 9879 0220 or Mobile 0409 504 486  (please leave a message if no answer)

PS:  Yes – I am still retiring as Convenor, so if you wish to step up, this is one tour already arranged for you to take over !



Healey Factory Tour – Wednesday evening 30th October 2019

The Healey Factory tour was attended by 33 and was a great event and enjoyed by all.

Director Rob Rowland and his team – Andrew, Chris and Peter did a fantastic job of showing and explaining the work and processes involved in restoring these classic old vehicles.

This Classic Car facility does full restorations on all sorts of Classic and Collectable vehicles. I have passed on the Clubs appreciation to Rob and his team who all showed their dedication.



Telstra Museum Tour – Wednesday 3rd and 10th April 2019

This tour was well attend  over the  2 days – with 41 folk (both ladies and gents) enjoying a very interesting tour and “a walk down memory lane” with the numerous past models of the telephone and the system that connects us all, across the world.

(A few former Telstra employees in our group had lots of questions and reflections !)  How things have changed over the years!

Thank you to all who joined us, and I trust you enjoyed the tour also – and thanks for the positive feedback. (See the 2 photos attached).
